for those who have menstrual (probably 50% of pple here), i will like to encourage you to try menstrual cups. be it luna, moon cup, diva cup, ruby cup, or whatever brand you fancy, go and search menstrual cup online…
for me personally i went vegan because I like to have a positive impact on earth and animals. And I realized a few months ago my period is also creating disposable waste. i was using and throwing sanitary pad every month.
did a few google searches for reusable sanitary pads, finally found menstrual cups, bought it in May. used it twice so far. and i feel great! the first time was very awkward (like my first date) but i think i got used to it.
for those vegans who like to try, go google for menstrual cups advice, or read this blogger article on comparing tampons, menstrual cups, pads
i really hope more and more women will use reusable stuff and reduce wastage.
